The insertion/ejection motor is responsible for sucking in the discs and ejecting them. If your Wii has stopped taking discs the first thing you should check is whether you can hear a noise when you attempt to insert the disc into the wii. If you hear a noise the first thing you should check is the belt on the insertion/ejection motor. If that's still in good shape the motor is probably dead. If you don't hear any noise at all the small board on top of the drive that detects the disc and tells the drive to turn on the motor might be bad. To replace the motor you'll need to disassemble the Wii optical drive and solder a couple of wires.
